Tyrannosaurus Re:violently overthrow the Constitution? (883 comments)

Well said, with a few exceptions:

Under your definition George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and other founding fathers were "terrorists." With out those terrorists, you would not have this constitution you seem to value so much.

Several people have responded to my post by pointing to GW while at the same time forgetting why GW took up arms in the first place. The American Revolutionaries had no representation, or had you forgotten "taxation without representation?"

...I do not feel that any action should be taken against him for raising revolution, which he has the right to do in this nation.

If the majority of the people in this country decide that the government needs a major overhaul, they have a mechanism for enacting change. The original colonists had no such mechanism--they were subject to British law, and that was that. Anyone who takes up arms against America today will quickly find out exactly what we have the NSA, FBI, CIA, Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard for.
